Bayern Munich undoubtedly put on the performance of the night, hammering Chelsea 3-0 in its own back yard to all but guarantee a place in the quarterfinals.

In the away end, the Bayern fans protested the price of Champions League away tickets; tonight’s costly trip saw them pay £55 ($71.50).

Elsewhere, Napoli and Barcelona played out an entertaining 1-1 draw in Italy.

Many fans in the San Paolo were wearing protective face masks amid the country’s coronavirus outbreak that has resulted in 11 deaths and more than 280 infections.

On the pitch, after Dries Mertens had given Napoli the lead with a stunning first-half strike, Barcelona grabbed a crucial away goal through Antoine Griezmann.
